Auto-complete function

If the first few characters you type in a cell of the spreadsheet match an existing entry in that column, MedCalc fills in the remaining characters for you. MedCalc completes only those entries that contain text or a combination of text and numbers; entries that contain only numbers, dates, or times are not completed.

  • To accept the proposed entry, press Enter.
  • To replace the automatically entered characters, continue typing.
  • To delete the automatically entered characters, press Backspace.

You can enable or disable the auto-complete function in the Options dialog box.

You can also select from a list of entries already in the column. To display the list, press Alt Down arrow to display the list, or right-click the cell, and then click Pick from List on the context menu.
